Excellent. These appear to be excellent numbers, very consistent with a lower risk for future stroke, or heart disease, compared with those who have high blood pressure. These numbers might be inappropriate for a child or infant, but for a health adult they should serve you well. Continue to take you blood pressure every once in a while to confirm that this is actually your average or "where you live".
Sounds. Fine. (:
Recently my blood pressure has dropped in the evenings. Last night it was 144/59 and my pulse was 74. Is this something serious?
That's not normal BP. 144/59 is still considered hypertension -- normal blood pressure is closer to 110 or 120 over 70-80. Normal pulse is from around 55-90 or so. The blood pressure you got is mildly elevated and not considered low. If it is running higher earlier in the day, you may need to see your doctor. Read more...
My blood pressure fluncuates between extreamly low to extreamly high as does my pulse. What is a safe normal fluncuating number I know 120/80 is ideal?
Varies. Older a person is, and the more risk factors for stroke and heart disease, the more dangerous fluctuations could be. Normal to have large fluctuations during exercise, extreme anxiety/stress. If at rest, something may be wrong. Heart rhythm testing, checking for medical conditions that could cause this- hyperthyroidism, adrenal problems- is needed. BP can feel like it is fluctuating and be normal. Read more...
